Scottsdale, AZ, February 27, 2017 — CNA National Warranty Corporation (CNAN) returned over $40 million to automobile dealers across the U.S. through its various participation plans for 2016. This brings its inception-to-date total to more than $424 million.
“Over the past five years, we’ve seen a significant increase in returns,” says Joe Becker, president and chief executive officer. “This performance demonstrates the strength, stability and flexibility of these programs. They deliver the dependability our dealers expect and deserve regardless of the participation option selected.”
With CNA National, dealers can select the participation program that best serves both their business and individual financial goals. The company offers a retro program, as well as reinsurance, including CFC (controlled foreign corporation) and NCFC (non-controlled foreign corporation) structures. CNA National’s NCFC—Palo Verde Holdings—is managed by a board of directors made up of dealer shareholders. It has over $220 million in assets, making it an excellent choice for dealers wanting to maximize investment returns while minimizing risk.
CNAN reinsures warranties, GAP and tire-and-wheel protection in addition to vehicle service contracts. The company has earned multiple awards as “Best Reinsurance Provider” in the Dealers’ Choice Awards, including first-place honors in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
